Christmas Kickstart Challenge #2 - Bundle Up!

Hi Everyone,

after Muse Christmas Visions ended, I was on the look-out for a new Christmas challenge I can paly along throughout the year, to lessen the stress in November and December. I think I found one! It is the Christmas Kickstart Challenge 

The current theme is "Bundle up"

   Christmas Kickstart Challenge

I took an ancient Hero Arts set and made the background with an iStencil. I love this one, one of my favorites! It is called Winter Striped Tree

I first sponged pencil dust, but it looked a bit anemic, so I shifted the stencil and sponged in green. Colored the deer with Inktense. Added Stickles.

The stitching is a CUTplorations die. The sentiment is lazily made with Washi tape......a Christmas gift from my blogging friend Gundi from Papierelle

Jingle Belles - look what Santa brought me (Washi tape)

What a fun card. First of all I love that stencil. That is such a fantastic look. And, I love the cute deer image you added to it as well. He is so darling in front of the stenciled design.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
